Rotating Game Mode queue update

http://na.leagueoflegends.com/sites/default/files/styles/scale_xlarge/public/upload/rgm.jpg Heya everyone, as we get closer to adding the new Rotating Game Mode queue, I wanted to give an update on where we’re at and some further insight into how it works. ^.^b -------------------------------------------------------------- **What times exactly is the queue going to be active?** We’re aiming to have the queue available every weekend starting around Friday afternoon and switching off sometime early on Monday morning. This will be in the local time for each region. The goal is to have it up once the weekend starts (that’s Friday night right?! :P) so we should get three evenings of fast game mode funtimes. This is just a first implementation, if the queue proves to be exceedingly popular, we can always lengthen the window. **How often will we see modes repeat?** This will depend on how many modes fall into the stable rotation. Modes will likely repeat every 1.5~2 months. Again, once we get started and see what modes come and go from the rotation, this could shift a little bit. This might feel short, but that’s compared to our previous cadence of _“once a year”_. Technically, _“anything less than 12 months”_ is shorter than that! :P In short (see what I did there?), we’re looking forward to getting everyone **more facetime with more modes, more frequently**. **How will champ mastery & loot work in the Rotating Game Mode queue?** Much like regular SR currently, there will be 2 ways to get a loot chest: --- Earn any S rank. --- Be in a premade with a friend who earns any S rank. All the regular loot conditions will also still apply, so you need to have a chest available to earn, only 1 per champion, etc. Champ mastery has also been customised for each one of these modes, so you’ll need to perform well at the particular mode. This is obviously different to the current SR earning and might be a little difficult initially compared to SR as each mode has varying ways to excel. We’ll be keeping a close eye on it though and tune as the queue goes on. **How do you choose what modes will go in the queue?** We’re interested in capturing a wide slice of the different types of gameplay that each of the historical featured game modes embody. We also want modes proven popular with players, who voted with their valuable playtime and spent it in those modes. <3 **Specifically what modes will be in the queue?** Poro King is already live on PBE and helping us test the new champ mastery algorithm. Later this week you’ll see Ascension go live on PBE to begin its tuning journey as well. We’ll announce more as we get closer to switching the Rotating Game Mode queue on live. -------------------------------------------------------------- That’s all I’ve got for now. Just wanted to keep everyone up-to-date on where we’re at. o^.^O Stay tuned for more news soon. I’ll hang out in here and grab questions for today too. ^_^/ L4T3NCY
